The experiment I recall from this life-changing documentary, was that a black child was asked to draw little "Sally," and the child proceeded to draw a person with full arms, legs, hair, eyes, etc. Then the black child was asked to draw herself, whereby she sketched what was pretty much a STICK person, without eyes, nose, etc. There was no fallacy in the experiment. The point made was that the black child saw herself as less than the white child.
A few years ago I asked my granddaughter Hillary to draw "Heather," our neighbor next door, and she sketched what looked like a mosquito. Then I asked her to draw herself. She put to paper a second mosquito. Perhaps we're making progress as long as we're ALL mosquitoes living together...
